Photos from Stanford Annual Holyday Dinner

Feb 4th - China & France




Only a few steps away from the Chinese New Year,

the Stanford Club of France, in cooperation with ISG and Deloitte,

invites you to a panel discussion and networking cocktail on new perspectives of China-France relations:

China and France: Cooperation or Competition ?

Monday, February 4, 2013 7:30 pm at Deloitte & Associés 185, avenue Charles de Gaulle 92200 Neuilly-sur-Seine

It is no coincidence that French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici began 2013 with a trip to China. China’s too-big-to-ignore market potential, France’s 69 billion euro trade deficit and the prospect of growing Chinese interest in French companies set the scene for one of the hottest and most controversial bilateral investment topics of the coming year.

Cooperation or Competition
how will France and China ring in the New Year

The Stanford Club of France has convened a panel of experts who will delve into these questions, address the nitty-gritty realities of bilateral business from the trenches and debate the path forward for France-China relations.

The discussion will be followed by a cocktail reception where you will have the opportunity to discuss related topics in an informal setting with Stanford Alumni and other attendees from leading French, Chinese and American universities.

RSVP now to join us for this high-level round table discussion
and a unique networking opportunity

December 7th - Van Gogh: Rêves de Japon

japonThe work of Van Gogh, which has been characterized as tortured and disorganized, was influenced by Japanese artists who concentrated on composition, serenity and inner peace.

Stanford alumni participated in one of the major cultural events of the year in Paris : a visit, with our usual conférencière Mme Dupeyrat, to the Pinacothèque which is featuring an exhibition of (about 40) selected works of Van Gogh which illustrate the influence of Japanese art (and especially that of Hiroshige) on Impressionist art.

Madame Odile Dupeyrat, a distinguished conférencière du Louvre, was at her best  helping us discover the nuances of these masterpieces (in French).


The Mentor Program


The Stanford University in Paris
Mentor Program

28, rue Notre-Dame des Champs - 75006 Paris


Dear Friends and Alumni,

More students than ever are now attending the Stanford Program in Paris this year, and many of them would appreciate the informal support and welcome Stanford overseas alumni have to give. We know many of you as well would like to meet up with the students, to keep up active and refreshed contacts with the home campus. In order to bring about this special exchange between students and alumni, we are once again delighted to launch our Mentor Program.

To understand how the program works, you should know that Stanford undergraduates (19-21 years old) spend either one, two or three quarters studying at the Stanford Center in Paris. (30-40 students each quarter) It is up to the alumni to decide the manner in which they can best contribute to the students’ experience in Paris.

To help us organize the program effectively, we would be grateful if you could fill out the Mentor formulaire, which focuses not only on your personal interests and profile, but also on the areas in which you would like to devote a bit of time to the students.  We will keep this form for our records. Please return it to us as soon as possible.

Every year, at the beginning of the academic year (September), we will contact you to update your information: your availability, how many students you would like to mentor for the year and during which quarters, your preferred student profiles, etc.

In this way, when the students come to Paris, we can direct them to an available mentor best suited to them.

This project has become one of the highlights of the students’ experience in France, and we hope the exchange will be just as rewarding for you as it is for us.

Paris — Over 50 Stanford University alumni and friends gathered in the simultaneously ornate and cozy gilded-ceilinged library of the Paris Googleplex for an evening of high-tech discussion and exchange. Attendees were privy to presentations about ongoing projects, including the Paris team’s pioneering work in ensuring optimal access for users browsing the web with less than cutting-edge smart phones, creating algorithms that automatically populate YouTube channels with related content and rolling out the exciting new Google Cultural Institute, whose aim is to preserve and promote culture online. The Google Cultural Institute is headquartered in Paris and will soon be housed in a special purpose-built space that will include the latest technologies for curating cultural exhibits offline.
